After my own personal testing and some researching, i've come to the point where i think this needs to be re-evaluated.

I've made an optimised version of Shore which features hundreds of min_spec alterations, varying from all, to very high, to high and to medium. I've played this map online with two different testers and neither have been kicked.

Then i discovered that the prefab buildings themselves have varying min_spec settings;

Both the default Prototype Factory and the War Factory have particle effects which are set to Medium min_spec. If this was still a valid concern, no one would be able to play Crysis Wars :)

Note: I believe i've only tested this on particle effects, not vegetation or brushes.

Thoughts?

Theese work if you use them properly.

- Geometric Entities - They can be used but wont sync correctly and movements/physics wont be controlled by the server but will be controlled by the client

- Gravity volume - works fine no idea why thats on the list

- ProximityTriggers - again works fine depending on what you use it for.

- Local player node- Can be used but only in a clientonly FG

- Minimum settings of all Objects must be: All - we have objects with specs on medium and the map is working fine.

That's good to know that the localplayer is able to work. :)

be careful though it might end up selecting all players as 1 input instead of 1 on each client if you use something like a proxi trigger without "MyPlayerOnly" highlighted

like i said if you dont set it up properly it will affect all clients, the best way to make sure its triggering on the clients machine thats being affected.
